4 good reasons to stay at Tasmania’s Historic 5 Star Boutique Hotel in The Derwent Valley

The Wonder of The Woodbridge

Idyllically located in the lush heart of the Derwent Valley, The Woodbridge   is the perfect place for those seeking a luxe stay in a heritage property just moments from the River Derwent. Love the location and like to know more? Here are 4 good reasons why The Woodbridge is the most wonderful place to stay.


1. The River: Guests wanting to get their river on can walk along the banks, swim, hydro bikes, paddle board or book a sea plane trip – and that’s just the beginning.  Additional bookable experiences include luxury guided fly-fishing (tailored to participants’ experience levels) as well as platypus-spotting kayak adventures.

2. The Accommodation: Created within a mansion that dates back to 1825, all eight one-of-a-kind guest rooms and suites at The Woodbridge have been lovingly restored and renovated and feature every creature comfort as well as stunning river vistas.


3. The Food: The Woodbridge takes pride in serving locally sourced seasonal produce, including fine local meats and seafood as well as the freshest fruit and vegetables. The breakfast menu is light, healthy and delicious, while the set menu dinner changes every evening and includes a soup taster with hot baked bread, main course and dessert. Specific dietary requirements (e.g. vegetarian, gluten-free) can usually be accommodated with advance notice.


Keen to explore more of Tassie’s food scene? The Woodbridge is just minutes from The Agrarian Kitchen Eatery. The renowned restaurant and cooking school celebrates the state’s famed seasonal produce and helps support a community of local growers, farmers and fishermen.


4. The Drinks: Tasmania is known for its cool climate wines and the pristine waters that help create some of the world’s most prized spirits. Discover new favourites on a chauffeured wine, whisky, gin or vodka tasting at some of the nearby historic estates.  Stefano Lubiana Wines produces fine biodynamic, organic, vegan wines. Book a wine tasting, drop by for a light bite or pick up rustic European style picnic fare for a riverbank lunch. Or check out the new rum distillery 4 blocks away.
